# Place value: Four-digit numbers

## In a nutshell

The are four place values for four-digit numbers: thousands, hundreds, tens and ones. Zeros can also be used as placeholders where necessary.

## Place values

A four-digit number can be separated or partitioned into thousands, hundreds, ten and ones. The position of the digit, or the place value, indicates how big the number is.

##### Example 1

Use place value to partition the number $6092$

The number $6092$ consists of $6$ thousands, $9$ tens and $2$ ones.

$\underline{6092 = 6000+90+2}$

Note: The zero in the hundreds column is a placeholder, as there are no hundreds for this number.

##### Example 2

Place the numbers $5678$$9283$ and $8274$ into a place value table.

The numbers have four digits, so the numbers can be separated into thousands, hundreds, tens and ones.
